djam: snow only enough to look pretty, not ski on. Quite heavy here at Buller, also.
I have rock hopped on 5-6 cm before!

The 5 kms rule will stay with the Curfew until Oct. 26th at very least . That is official according the the great emperor today in THE AGE. So once again in 2020 we look at the snow cam.s and weep.

chriscross: Looks to me like Monday would be the day. Hypothetically, of course. Our virtual xc skier would need to somehow bypass a (reported) check point at Nar Nar Goon (no aboriginal names between Dandenong and Warragul, except maybe Bunyip). Will dear leader Dan see fit to extend our range on Sunday? Somehow, I doubt it. But virtual xc skier has been confined for some time. Awaits cams. Hypothesising.
We could go imaginary XC skiing together. I am rusty at XC skiing. I have hardly XC skied at all this year . :-((

Baw Baw is not charging fees for front gate entry anymore for 2020. So some lucky forum members will be XC skiing this weekend and Monday up there what with this snow fall coming and all. Wheel Chains will be mandatory for this coming weekend at Baw Baw.

I look forward to hiking at Baw Baw this summer if all goes well and skiing there in 2021.

Stay on topic. There is a Covid Politics thread so please post there to discuss opinions of regulatory nature.

It's a public health crisis. You should be more attuned to the view of the health professional who posted earlier. The last comments above are completely over the top, irrational as well as irrelevant to this thread. Such extreme political opinions should be expressed somewhere else, if at all.

Mister Tee on XC Skis: The public mental illness ramifications will exceed those of the actual virus. I am not
It's total madness. They're going to destroy this country. The rest of the world is sheepishly moving on, while we remain trapped by past rhetoric and logic and the cowardice of our politicians.

Boodwah: Folks are happy
The public mental illness ramifications will exceed those of the actual virus. I am not about being stuck at home with no option for solo or a plus one spot of recreation in the Vic. Alps or at a surf beach or a national park . I don 't know of anyone who has lost their job/business due to the the lockdowns who is . I do not know any one in the performing arts ( my field) who is to have no audience nor a viable outlet for their life's whole work. I do not know of anyone who is single who lives alone whose mental health has taken a severe turn for the worse during this year who is about remaining cut off from interacting with other people altogether. Baw Baw looks good for skiing and some more snow is coming on Friday 4/9/20.

Mister Tee on XC Skis: The State Govt. cannot lock us all up for the whole green season. That is not going to work. There will be a strong push back against that.
No there won't. Folks are happy to sit this one out so that other folk don't die. Suck it up.

Oldie: ;) Yes. Last time I was up there last season, perhaps I should have measured the height of the fire-pit. That would have given me a pretty good idea. Might even be worth a trip up in summer to do that!:)
I am going up to the Baw Baw N.P. in green season to scout out the Mt. St. Phillack saddle to Mt. Whitelaw area and possibly the Stronarch's campsite too. Finding Jann's hut seems like a worthy adventure too.

Mister Tee on XC Skis: The Table o meters give you an idea of the present snow depth above 1480 M. ASL.

Oldie: It is disappointing that Baw baw has stoped the daily snow depth report! Even though we cant go for a ski, I still like to know the amount of snow fall. The others still have daily updates on their webpages so surely Baw baw could do the same. I cant believe that there is absolutely no-one there. They should at-least have a webcam on a depth stick.:(
